Important Notes
UPDATE - ANNAPURNA BLIZZARDS & AVALANCHE Over 30 people have died as a result of heavy snowfall in the Annapurna region and north Dolpa district since 14 October. The weather is improving, but conditions at high altitude remain hazardous and light snow is forecast for the Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu and Jomsom regions. Our local partners in Nepal have confirmed that all Intrepid travellers are safe and accounted for. The local authorities continue to advise against trekking in the area around Thorang-La pass on the Annapurna circuit because of heavy snow. This tour does not trek in the affected region and will run as per the original itinerary. Updated 21st October 2014

From ancient kingdoms to majestic mountain vistas, trek for 15 days through the breathtaking Himalaya landscape of the Annapurna Ranges. Pass awe-inspiring glaciers, stay on the banks of pristine rivers, cross mountain pastures, dip into natural hot springs and encounter mule trains carrying supplies to remote villages. Rest and revive in cosy mountain teahouses and meet friendly locals along the way. Time spent in Kathmandu and Pokhara completes the adventure with insights into Nepali culture and tradition.

Itinerary

Day 1 Kathmandu
Kathmandu is like an alluring whirlwind of sights, sounds, smells and colours. Almost overwhelming, its charm and history peeks out from the most unexpected places rendering most visitors enamoured.
Day 2 Bandipur
Bandipur is a delightful Nepalese town with traditional wooden houses, narrow streets and daily life spilling out into the streets, the same as it has been for centuries.
Day 3 Pokhara
Nestled in a valley and sitting on a lake so still it reflects the mountains, Pokhara is the gateway to the Annapurna Ranges and Nepal's second largest city.
Days 4-13 Annapurna Ranges
The Annapurna Range is a truly amazing region to explore with its spectacular mountain wilderness and isolated communities, each with their own ancestral customs and traditions.
Days 14-15 Pokhara
With towering peaks in the distance and streets filled with cafes, shops and temples, Pokhara is a relaxing city sitting by the banks of Phewa Lake.
